A 24-year-old man from Rushinga together with the nephew took turns to rape his wife the whole night, police have said. Acting Mashonaland Central provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Petros Masikati confirmed the incident saying investigations were in progress.
“We received a report of a Rushinga man who teamed up with his nephew to rape his wife for the whole night and we have since launched a manhunt for the two men who are still at large,” he said.
It is reported that the three slept together in the same room and the husband started demanding sex from his wife which she declined citing that it was a shameful act to be done in full view of their nephew.
After that the wife decided to leave the room but was held back by her husband.
While holding his wife’s legs it is alleged that the husband then instructed his nephew to have sexual intercourse with her.
The following day the wife told her aunt about the matter and she was advised to report the matter to the police but the wife failed to do so in a bid to save her marriage.
The matter came to light on October 8 after the wife was assaulted by her husband and that is when she reported the matter to police.
Asst Insp Masikati appealed to members of the public who might know the whereabouts of the two to report at their nearest police station.
